BSSEF looking for helping hands
Big Sky Ski Education Foundation to raise much needed funds for young athletes
Ready, set, golf!
The Big Sky Ski Education Foundation (BSSEF) is hosting their second annual charity golf tournament at the Big Sky Golf Course on Saturday, June 19. Golfers will tee off at 10 a.m. and the activities will continue to 5 p.m.
The tournament is sponsored by title sponsors Big Sky Build and the Hungry Moose, as well as Pinky G’s Pizzeria, Discovery Academy and Community Learning Center, Big Sky Home Management, 3 Rivers Communications, CS Construction, Two Pines Property Management, George’s Distributing, Stay Montana, E.L. Painting and Dave Pecunies Photography. It is a four person scramble and will include multiple mini games, such as chipping and putting contests, as well as swag bags for every team. Up to 25 teams can sign up for the tournament at a price of $400 per team.
The tournament will benefit young athletes throughout Big Sky by funding various scholarships provided by BSSEF each year. These scholarships give young athletes an opportunity to participate in BSSEF, athletes that may not have been able to otherwise. Scholarships will cover things such as, “Program registration, equipment for athletes, in season travel expenses, postseason qualifying expenses, really any equipment they might need or any travel related expenses,” Administrative Assistant and Project Coordinator Jessie Lepel said.
Volunteers for the tournament are still needed. Volunteers will help out with setting up sponsor signs, managing the various mini games and packing lunches for the participants. If you are interested in volunteering, visit https://bssef.com.
The opportunities for helping out BSSEF do not stop there, however. Community members are encouraged to volunteer for the many events that the BSSEF puts on.
“We encourage a lot of volunteers in the winter when we host ski races, as well as freeride competitions and nordic skiing events, as our team is now hosting events in the community,” Lepel said. Therefore if you are not able to volunteer on Saturday, there will be many more opportunities to come.
Community members are invited to come out and support from the Big Sky Golf Course Clubhouse and Bunker Bar and Grill.
